Hezbollah fighters have killed scores of Takfiri terrorists after the gunmen crossed from crisis-hit Syria into eastern Lebanon and attacked the Lebanese resistance movement’s posts.
According to Press TV, a Hezbollah source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the movement’s posts in the mountains around Nabi Sbat, situated east of the town of Baalbek in the Beqaa Valley, were attacked by armed groups who came from Syria’s mountainous Qalamoun region along the border with neighboring Lebanon.
Most of the terrorists killed during Sunday clashes were from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. Two Hezbollah fighters were also martyred in the process.
The development comes a day after Lebanese army forces drove back a group of terrorists who were attempting to enter the country from the Syrian border.
The gunmen tried to enter the eastern Lebanese town of Arsal, situated 124 kilometers northeast of the capital, Beirut, on Saturday, but were repelled by Lebanese soldiers and forced to flee back into Syria.
